BT Convention Centre Liverpool, part of ACC Liverpool, is to add four high profile medical symposiums to its roster of confirmed events between 2011 and 2018.

UK Dementia Congress will take place in November 2011, bringing 1000 delegates to the venue, while the Association of Coloproctology of GB & Ireland will take place in 2013 bringing a further 800 delegates into the city. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, having previously used the venue in 2009 and 2010 have confirmed their intention to return for a further two years in both 2011 and 2012 at the venue and Symposium Mammographicum will see over 800 conference delegates assemble at the Liverpool venue in both 2016 and 2018.

ACC Liverpool has increasingly become the nucleus for a series of high profile medical conferences from across the world.  Since opening in 2008, the venue has hosted pioneering medical events with speakers at the fore of their medical field.  Events to date include NHS Confederation annual conference, National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) who will return to Liverpool in November 2011 and the Royal College of Nursing congress who only last week confirmed their return to the venue in 2013 following a very successful conference in April 2011.

The development of the new exhibition and events complex adjoining ACC Liverpool in 2014 will further widen the scope for hosting large scale symposiums from across the globe.

Bob Prattey, CEO, ACC Liverpool, said: "These new wins reinforce our strength in hosting events in the medical sector.  We are also delighted that many of our clients, having hosted an event for the first time at ACC Liverpool, are signing contracts to return.  This is a massive vote of confidence in our offer and the ultimate accolade for us in terms of our delivery and service levels.  
The city is recognised as a pioneer for medicine and science through the Universities so it is encouraging to see organisers of medical events capitalising on this and choosing the BT Convention Centre Liverpool for events of this nature."
